Since 2013, Story Expo has been the preeminent conference in the world for serious Screenwriters, TV Writers, Authors, and more. We shifted, as the rest of the world did, to an online format from 2020 to 2022, but stormed back LIVE IN PERSON in 2023 with a jam-packed NYC event attended by writers from around the world

We take writing, and writers, seriously. Over the past 11 years, we've featured the biggest and best teachers and speakers in the world on the art and craft of writing and storytelling. From legendary screenwriting guru SYD FIELD giving the very first Opening Keynote at Story Expo 1 in 2013, to legendary and internationally renowned story guru ROBERT McKEE giving the Closing Keynote at Story Expo in 2023, we've featured the best teachers in the world along side Oscar and Emmy-winning industry heavyweights.

For our 2024 edition, we're going big - STORY EXPO 11 will feature over two and a half days of advanced story theory and practical, professional techniques, in addition to story workshops, career workshops, our famed pitching room, industry Q&As and more.

 

Anchoring our Story Expo Masters of Story Theatre this year we'll have "The Best Script Doctor In The Industry" John Truby teaching a full day session, the massively influential author of "The Writer's Journey" Chris Vogler teaching a full half day master class, and reclusive story guru David S Freeman, a regular consultant and speaker at major film and studios around the world, but rarely does he teach to the general public anymore.  The LA Times called David, "One of the few screenwriting gurus who has become an institution" in Hollywood.

Story Expo remains the only large-scale writers conference in the world dedicated to the craft of story and writing for screenwriters, TV writers, novelists and more. In 2023, we roared back to LIVE-in-person events with a once-in-a-lifetime lineup of Robert McKee, John Truby and Chris Vogler headlining two big days in NYC.
